    Hi!

    If you want to embed your WordPress blog into your website like you would a youtube video, or something else. I can help you with this!

    It took me days of reading and hours of coding to figure this one out and when I got it, it was so simple my mind exploded. I found this simple code NO WHERE mentioned on the forums I read.

    What I got instead was advice on how to make my wordpress look like my website, and them make a fancy button on my website that links directly to my wordpress that looks like my website (therefore tricking my clients into believing they are on my website when they go to my wordpress. Yes this could work, but it wasn’t really what I wanted.

    Instead I realized I could “Iframe” it and put the blog directly on my website! It was a lot easier this way because I'm a property manager, not a technical magical web wizard that I adore so much.

    How you do this is go into your website that allows you to use HTML code (the same place where you would embed a youtube video) and type this in:

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="WWW" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Where I put the three W’s, you delete the W’s and put your unique wordpress address. Press save, and your blog should be embedded into your webpage just like a youtube video would be. You can change the width and height of the box by messing with the numbers after “width” and “height” in the code.

    Yours Truly,
    Francesca

    Iframe is not the best method at all and can seriously harm your site in terms of SEO (Google ranking). If your website is also built using PHP, then you can use the header and footer from your site in your WP blog.

    There is a misunderstanding about iframes harming SEO. There is NO inherent penalty from using them, because there are several legitimate uses for them and Google realizes this. For example there are iframes in Gmail, and iframes for when we embed our youtube videos, and iframes for our facebook business page, which are ALL indexed on Google without penalty.

    The only down side of Iframes is that it is not a part of the parent website, and therefore not indexed as such so it doesn't help your SEO in that regard, but it doesn't hurt it.

    Besides that there are many factors that effect SEO, and getting someone to click on your blog from your iframed webpage will help and can help your Blogs SEO which in turn can help your website's SEO. So there is still plenty of benefit.

    That is why I am Iframing it, until I figure out what I want to do (either buy into a wordpress premium website, or something else). For now my blog is on my website and it works, and it is beneficial.

    Thank you esmi, but that is what I was talking about before. This wordpress article you referenced is talking about making your wordpress look like your website, and then linking your website to your blog..to look like your blog is a page of your website, when really they are two different sites.
